Meinl are giants in the world of drums and are well known for their incredible cymbals and wide range of percussion instruments.
History of Meinl
Meinl instruments actually began in 1951 by Roland Meinl producing wind instruments. It was only in 1974 that the company started to package pre-pack cymbals. Initial production was focused on producing cheap alternatives in the cymbal range but in 1984 this changed to include their King-Beat series which saw them add high-quality, professional cymbals to the line.
Meinl are well known their experimentation with different alloys in their cymbals which will obviously result in different amounts of sustain, resonance and bite when using them in live or studio situations. They’ve ensured their product range is wide so that drummers can find a cymbal that suits every style, and every application from heavy hitting rock players to jazz players with a light touch.
